The Hand Dryer Range

The Addvent automatic hand dryers are designed for areas of light to medium usage to provide a fast and reliable hand-drying system. The AVHD2000AAC is for heavier usage areas and is constructed from heavy-duty cast aluminium. With its high surface-area element, fast drying times can be achieved with minimum energy usage.

Rapide 'Green Spot' Hand Dryers
Our Rapide 'Green Spot' hand dryer offer great eco-credentials. With its tri-colour drying zone and powerful operation it provides super-fast drying times of between 10-12 seconds. This combination of high-speed drying, variable element output and low-energy usage gives as much as 70% energy saving and substantially lower ‘cost of ownership’ figures over comparable, conventional dryers. Available in brushed stainless steel, or white enamel finishes, the Rapide offers a solution for every drying application from chic 'boutique' hotel washrooms to the no-frills demands of schools and construction sites.
